    Arrrgh! Those are fighting words! As an old woman myself whose fellow Democratic precinct workers are mostly older folks, I must disagree. It’s a struggle to get most young people active in the grunt work of party politics. If all the retired people stopped being active, party organization would grind to a halt and a lot of donations would be lost, both parties.
    I hope this March will add ageism to all the other isms and profiling we oppose.
